Padres GM A.J. Preller said the club will look at Carlos Villanueva as a starter this spring.
Chances are he'll end up back in a long-relief role, but it's worth a try. Villanueva posted an impressive 2.95 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 55/21 K/BB ratio in 61 innings of relief last season for the Cardinals. He did start five games for the Cubs in 2014, and he started 44 games for the Cubs and Blue Jays between 2011-2013. San Diego offers the kind of home pitching environment that could allow the 32-year-old right-hander to flourish in a more extended role. Feb 4 - 2:17 PM
